Default Silverstone Raven RV01 + 2.5" drives?

Hi :)

Does the RV01 come with a 2.5" bay? If not, how would I fit a SSD in?

It does not. You can get 2.5" to 3.5" adapters like this: NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Bay Rafter 2.5 Rev B. 2X 2.5IN Hard Drive SSD 3.5IN Drive Bay Mounting Kit - Bay Rafter 2.5 Rev.B In Canada.

They are also available for 5.25" bays.

I don't think there is a place to mount a SSD for that revision.

You would probably have to get a 2.5" to 3.5" bay ssd adapter. After that it will fit in most cases with 3.5" hdd bays.

NCIX.com - Buy OCZ OCZACSSDBRKT2 2.5IN to 3.5IN Converter Drive Bay Adapter Bracket - Holds 1X 2.5IN SSD or HDD - OCZACSSDBRKT2 In Canada.

Here's a quick link to it.

There are probably cheaper products out there.

Edit: Oh you beat me. :P

Ahh, I see! And they would work with the Raven's weird hard drive installation? With the screws and the screwless thing going on.

Anyway, thank you for the links :D Now I know what to search for!

I use the intel adapter that came with my drive, works fine in the 3.5" bay.

It's a great case. Have fun with it. And yes, the adapters work well with the Raven's HDD bay design.
